About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Hi, i am Alice, and i live in my Wonderland, just 30 minutes away from Florence.
i run a 5 rooms B&B and a family, both located in an enchanted vineyards valley farm, 3 km away from the closest village (San Casciano) only reachable walking or by car (we give lofts when possible), with no public transportation or lighting.
i need 2 girls (possibly not traveling together since i prefer overlapping arrival/departures dates) to help with breakfasts and housekeeping, while i take care of front and back office tasks, and with my second child, born in may 2019.
